Storyboarding your movie - best apps or software?

Your probably a traditionalist - you use pen and paper to sketch out your ideas, thumbnails and storyboards. But if you are an early adopter or tech-savy person, perhaps you use an ipad app, online software or digital drawing program that works for you.
Please do reply with your favorites - I'd love to see what's working for you and why you'd recommend it. I have several like the ipad app "53 paper", "procreate" and "sketch".

Hi Jean.. I'm new with storyboarding. I've played with a few apps here or there but normally print out templates and draw by hand. Guess I'm the traditionalist.
Although there are so many to choose from, I recently discovered a free software "Storyboard Fountain" just before reading your post. I believe it's Mac only. I haven't tried it yet due to my busy schedule, but I will soon enough.
Thanks for your suggestions.

You can also do it in a program like photoshop. Create shot windows, copy and paste shadows and heads of people into shot window. Can be time consuming if you're not good with the software though.
